dropped iPhone 3GS screen unresponsive


I dropped my iphone 3gs while I was standing in the street. There was no sign of crack on the screen and also the LCD is working fine since it shows everything. I tried hard reset and restore to factory setting. It did not work.

Then I thought it should be the digitizer problem, so I bought a new digitizer and installed it successfully. However, it did not solve the problem and my screen is not responding!

What else can be happened to my iphone? Is there anything else that can be checked by me? Pretty sure the new digitizer is installed carefully and all the connections are already connected.

Please help me with this,

no.1 it is possible that the part you bought doesn't work either or is incorrect part, so try another known working digitiser.

no.2 possibly the connection on the motherboard has cracked a joint. It is possible to repair yourself if you have a very fine solder tip, fine gauge solder and good magnification. You could try to re-tin each of the 20+ pins to see if it restores function.

no.3 It is also far more likely that if you are inexperienced with solder you will make a big pile of melted plastic and not solve the problem. I'd suggest that if a new digitiser doesn't solve the problem then sending it off to an online company/local firm that offers a flat rate repair for this type of thing would be far safer.
